Windows 7: Removing XP and resizing Win 7 partition

Removing XP and resizing Win 7 partition

I am running Windows 7 all great and haven't had any problems, I want to make Windows 7 my sole operating system and remove my XP partition. I managed to install Windows 7 on a separate partition with no problems but just wondering if it's all fine to go ahead and delete my XP partition and then resize my Windows 7 partition back up, this wouldn't create any problems?

Just a matter of backing up all the essentials first, just in case?

Cheers,

Hi there
If you want to get rid of XP just boot into Windows 7 and do clean install.
Delete ALL the OS partitions and create new one's from the install prompt.

If you want a separate partition manager download the BOOTABLE FREE GPARTED application. Just google for it.

Cheers
